This generates more sales and more cash. Result is a prosperous business that has cash to continue growing.

14 Steps to managing your cash flow
List all of your income for the month. List all of your expenses, even the small ones. Total the amounts on each list. Income should be more than expenses. If not, there are two options: Reduce your expenses. Find a way to bring in more income.

What if they present information in a way that is legal but not quite ethical? What if they get the loan, but the bank finds out? Bank might not trust the business in the future. May always be concerns about accuracy of financial information Business might have trouble getting other loans. Was it worth it to be less than completely truthful? Was there another way to be ethical and still get the loan?
